Thinking Aloud

Mercie gave a talk in Primary today. Wanting her to do this on her own, I refrained from interjecting or editing her speech. The assigned topic was "Jesus is my savior." This is her talk, verbatim:

I think I love Jesus. I think I'm going to follow His commandments. I think I'm going to listen to Him. I think I'm done.

There you have it.

A Quiet Time of Reflection & Meditation (yeah, right!)

Scripture time at our house gets a little rambunctious some days...

Why Eric Probably Needs Brothers

Eric: "Mom! MOM! Where's my panties?"

Mom: "You mean, your underwear?"

Eric: "NO! I mean, my PANTIES!"

Drunk on Santa-Power

Sometime over Christmas Mia proudly pranced into my room to show off her Santa costume (note the carefully arranged paper towel fragments artfully masking-taped to her chin).
When Grace realized that Mia's creativity had garnered both maternal attention AND the camera, she hurried to take things up a notch, competitive soul that she is.

Mia-Santa trumped her by promptly pulling out the 'naughty' list & adding Grace's name.
Ah, the holiday season, when a spirit of peace and goodwill envelops every household.

Photographic Evidence

that once upon a time, Grace & Mia thought unloading the dishwasher was such a glamorous, highly-desirable activity that they would resort to begging on their knees for the privilege. Really.

Think I'll get any mileage out of this in a year or two?
